Re: Writing a Novel on 12.9 Ipad Pro?

UPDATE: I just tried out the "Pen to Print" iOS app, Scanning a copy of my best handwriting (i.e., easily legible to other humans) resulted in a transcription so garbled that typing it in from scratch would be faster than correcting the transcription line-by-line. I'm afraid I can't recomm...

Re: Scrivener iOS syncing via Dropbox continues to crash the app

You can still roll back; you just can't do so with iTunes. Please see my directions for how to roll back with the iMazing app in this thread: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=58881

Hope this helps!

Re: Is it possible to get a running total in outline view?

Well, the way I do it is to have a folder inside the Draft folder that completely contains my manuscript (i.e., add a second "draft" folder inside the first, and put my chapters inside that.) This came about for me because I'm keeping my entire series inside one project, so the folders tha...

Re: How to Roll Back to an Earlier iOS / iPadOS Version Using iMazing

I'm glad you found it helpful, @TerranceM! I do have an update: the IPSW Downloads site https://ipsw.me/ has changed they way it asks you to identify your device. It now asks you to first select your device from a list of images---fine. It then asks you to select a "platform." If you're lu...

Re: Who overthinks?

The benefit I get from "pantsing" – I really dislike that word; there must be a better one – is the knowledge I gain about my characters. Whole sub-plots emerge from them without me doing any work, and said plots often bubble up into the main plot and become central. Sometimes it feels li...

Re: Using colored text to define things in the editor

Great tip, Ioa! There is one problem I've found, though: If I'm using iOS Scrivener at all, the "purely visual highlighting fills" are not visible on iOS. Thus, text tagged ONLY with a do-nothing named style is effectively indistinguishable on iOS from default text (especially as I can't, ...

Re: Typing Lag

The other suggestion I might offer is to shut down/power up rather than simply restarting. (Twice.) Shutting down will physically force memory to zero, which a restart doesn't do. Sometimes it makes a difference.

Re: Good program horrible support

When buying software online, I learned a long time ago to keep at least three copies of any activation key. This is essential, and I learned it the hard way by having to purchase a software package twice (that was much more expensive than Scrivener!). Such keys are often tied to email addresses (whi...

Re: Search, Sort, and Navigate to Documents by Date Last Modified

If you want to. Or, you can save a project search on "*", limited to your draft folder, as a dynamic collection. After you do that, sort the collection as you wish. The collection will update itself as you add documents, and will be available until you delete the collection. Just click on ...

Re: Compose Window Texture Background

Here's a possible workaround :

Remove the texture background from Preferences. Then go to Project->Project Settings...->Background Images. Set the Composition Mode background to what you will.

You will need to do this for every project,

Re: any way to change font size of text in the Synopsis?

Try Preferences->Appearance->Index Cards->Fonts. Index card fonts carry over to the Inspector synopsis view. For Outliner display of synopses, use Preferences->Appearance->Outliner->Fonts. There's an option to change the Outliner synopsis font there.

Hope this helps!
